North America

Hi, I’m Nomadic Matt, a New York Times best-selling author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day and Ten Years a Nomad as well as the founder of this website! Over the past eleven years, I’ve helped millions of people answer those questions and travel more for less with time tested and proven tips and advice. By using this website, you can spend less time searching the Internet and being overwhelmed with information and more time doing the one thing you want to do: travel more. Growing up in Boston, I was never a big traveler. It just wasn’t something my friends or family did. I didn’t take my first trip overseas until I was 23. After college, I got a job and the standard American two-weeks-a-year vacation. For that first trip in 2004, I went to Costa Rica. The experience changed my life. It opened me up to all the possibilities the world had to offer. There, I experienced another culture, wildlife I had only read about in books, new foods, got lost in a jungle, saw conservation projects in action, and met people from around the world. I was the captain of my own ship and every day was new and different. From that moment on, I was hooked on travel. The following year, a trip to Thailand opened my eyes even more. There, in the wonderful city of Chiang Mai, I met five backpackers who showed me that I didn’t have to be tied down to my job or be rich to travel. They were five people who were living my dream of traveling full-time. I wanted in. I wanted to do what they were doing. After that trip, I flew home, finished my MBA, quit my cubicle job, and, in July 2006, set out on an adventure around the world that continues to this day. Since then, I’ve traveled to over 100 countries and territories, traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, slept in over a thousand hostels, tried weird food (including fried maggots), made lifelong friends, learned multiple languages, and, most importantly, made it my mission now to help travelers like YOURSELF to realize YOUR travel dreams the same way those five backpackers helped me realize mine.
